Re: things you liked about burningman...

This was the first year I actually stayed up for sunrise several times. There's nothing quite like the sun rising out there, so beautiful, and especially when shared.

Re: DJ Art Cars And Their Effect On Art

yay for this thread!! I can't stand that car, and it's one of the single biggest reasons I don't attend the LA regional events, because it is ALWAYS there. It's like a cheesy, lame club on wheels, and I don't think it adds anything to Burning Man whatsoever. I avoid this car actively, so I didn't ex...

Re: Need a ride from LA/North Hollywood

You may already be doing this, but also make sure you browse the ride share board for rides being offered, and contact as many of those as you can. I think you will find a ride :) Good luck! :D

Here's a link to a good blog post on it: http://www.maxicon.com/Burning_Man/PVC_Structures/pvc_on_the_playa.htm I also cut that down to the 5 foot sections, and I used 2 foot sleeves of 1.25&qu...

Re: Walk-In Camping Question (s)

Just because you won't be camping with your friend does not mean you need to be in the walk-in camping area. There will be plenty of areas all over the city to camp where you can drive your car right up and set up camp, you do not have to be part of a camp. I would not recommend walk-in camping unle...

Re: What do I pack all my shit in?

I'd nicely ask to be dropped off at your camp. That's pretty standard when you get a ride out there. If that's really not a possibility then maybe you could get a folding wagon or folding luggage cart or folding dolly and stack your stuff onto that to wheel it over to your camp? But seriously....ask...

Re: Park at Reno Airport, then BXB?

I think it would really be an extra hassle to park and take another means of transportation in. If you close your car up for the week once you've unpacked everything you can minimize the dust that gets inside. I also laid a big plastic drop cloth over the back seats and trunk so that when I packed t...

Re: Thoughts on shade for a very large canvas tent?

You could put a smaller tent inside the big one and leave the big tent open for airflow. Then have the swamp cooler service the smaller tent only. Sleep in the small tent and use the big tent for hanging out, and storage. I mean that tent is HUGE so I think you could do this pretty easily.
